xbmcremote and xbmc-potato aren't quite "xbmc" on device per se...
is there something I'm missing in the repos?
xbmc properly working and available in the repos?
and if so which repos are they please...
I'd like to try this out...

xbmc works...yes...as has been demonstrated in a few youtube vids...
it just works....just..
but...the video is too much for the n900 under maemo.
streaming those frame rates ...those resolutions ...was never meant for the n900...
as can be seen...in said youtube videos...
Hell just go to xbmc on your pc and look at the res. and streaming qualities of those frame rates straight from their sources...
It's just too much ..

unless someone comes up with an on-the-fly converter...

XBMC (working fully)
ON
THE
N900
WILL
NEVER
HAPPEN


perhaps under an alt os...easy deb or debian900 or ..another os..
it may possibly have better results now...
But I know of no xbmc functioning fully on the n900 at this point in time...

now ....
running xbmc on a pc and streaming from the pc using knots or a vnc..to your n900...
.wellll...that is more likely to work than running xbmc fully on the n900...
